Terence Moore is a writer for MLB.com and has a long, extensive resume as a baseball writer. He has recently written an article that I wanted to bring to light and worth the few second to read.

It is this rational thinking of the Hall of Fall voters that have allowed wife beaters, racists, murders grace the bronze busts in the hallow halls in Cooperstown New York. They want to have the overly controlling powers to pick and choose "you stay, you go, you wait for the second ballot, you will not get 100% of the vote because Babe Ruth did not get it..."
There were your peer writers in the golden age that said Williams, Joe D, and the Mick had nothing on Ty Cobb, Honus Wagner, Joe Jackson, or the Babe from the early part of the century. Do you think they were full of it for making those remarks?
Give me a break
Baseball is about more than stats and will withstand the tests of time. People never forget, but 50-75-100 years from now Cal Ripken will be that Lou Gehrig figure. Albert and Junior will stand next to the Babe. Maddux will be talked along with Feller, Mattewson, and Young. Simply because you are witnessing it before your eyes should not lessen its' value and revere the yesteryears.
